{You Are My Sunshine}: A Palette of Gray + Yellow

{Shades of Gray + Yellow}

Yellow & gray has been on the top of the list as one of the hottest & trendiest color palettes to use in your wedding since last year. And although some proclaim that this color palette is on its way out, I have to disagree! I mean just look at how these colors come together! Surely most of you will agree that this is just one of those color palettes that really just stands out! Its got fun written all over it while still maintaining a sense of elegance & sophistication. Some of the ideas I'm just loving in this board include the beautiful gray & yellow floral motif invitations by our friends over at Wedding Paper Divas, and of course the beautiful bridesmaids attire. Oh, and I'm also really loving the idea of wearing a fascinator in lieu of a traditional bridal veil! What about you? Are you liking how these colors come together?

So how are you feeling about this yellow + gray palette? If you know me, then you know I L-O-V-E Yellow. But that's not to say that it's for everyone! Some people are just not yellow fans! But for those of you who assured you're not alone! There is something so fun about this palette. Any brides-to-be out there who are considering yellow + gray? Do tell! xo

i liked it, nices article and....
i liked they kissing style perfect


I originally wanted to do black and white with yellow accents. But my hometown college's colors are black and yellow, and I was afraid that would run to close. So I have chosen to do a dark gray and yellow. I am going to do a gray satin dress with a yellow sash and yellow heels. Thanks for more ideas with these colors, I have been looking for more!

I want a palette like this but with Plum or dark purple instead of the gray :)

Lauren Schiely January 29, 2012

I'm hesitant to let go of our blue and brown idea, but I have to admit, this one is coming dangerously close to being our new palette!


my colors for my wedding is canary yellow and charcoal gray these to colors to me say even tho at times it seems as if we have hit a gray area just remember the sun will shine on us eventually idk just a thought dont judge me


My fiancé just recently asked, but I've known for a long time yellow would be in my wedding. I love the way this yellow and grey are combined and how they look together. (:
